Well -in my experience-unless you pull sumo style-a deadlift suit is worthless. It will add nothing and might even hinder you-ie prohibit you from getting into the proper positioning. The top deadlift of all time-Any Bolton-did his 935 this year in a singlet. As for raw only competitions there is a big raw power meet in massachusetts the first weekend in november 5&6. Pick up the august edition of powerlifting USA magazine for details. Great job on the pull!
